A letter to you...

For fourteen years
all that I was known
was that I had a mother
I didn't know of.
And all I knew of her
was her name.
Then there came that day
when I was told of you both
but only because of her,
because she made a decision
to tell me so.

So, now I take this time
to write you both this letter.

A letter to you both,
to my brother and to my sister
who I just came to heard of,

Your Meaningless Love

If I asked you if you loved me
would you mean every word you spoke.
If I asked you if you thought of me
- your distant child-
would I find that special moment
when you thought of me so dearly.

But if you ask me if I loved you
there wouldn't be any words
that could express my feelings

Is the day I’m finished, she says.

And she eyes me with disdain

Ode To Eva

You are sunkissed hair

All seaside skin

The tomboy princess

Scraped knees, bruised shins.

 

A tree climbing angel

My hide and seek belle

All beauty and promise

Like an old wishing well.

 

Such a natural leader

As you're learning and growing

You shine like a beacon

So head strong and knowing.

 

Bringing joy in abundance

As I watch you develop

She screams

A sound that penetrates

The hearts of all around.

 

She breaks

Her heart explodes

She crumbles to the ground.

 

A child

Her childhood stolen

With the burst of a pea.

 

Her mother

Gone forever, gone

Her brain not meant to be.

 

What now?

The love stops here

A cry for help.

 

Don't leave

Come back to her

The child needs yo...
